It’s true. Sometimes in the quest of beauty, you over do it: too much colouring, too many hair products and styling tools. It happens to the best of us. It’s no wonder hair becomes dull and lifeless.
 
To get your hair shiny and cute again, take a hands off approach for awhile. Follow these six easy steps:
 

  •  De-gunk your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of build up.
  •  

  • Moisturise. If dryness is the culprit, use a moisturising shampoo and deep condition weekly!
  •  

  • Add shine. Dull hair can be perked up with a shine spray, mist or serum.
  •  

  • Use the right styling brush. A brush with tightly packed bristles smoothes hair, giving it a glossy finish.
  •  

  • Blow dry on cool or warm. Drying hair on a hot setting will only add to the damage.
  •  

  •  Protect hair from the elements. Whether it’s the beach or a cold, windy day, cover your hair and spray those locks with a sun block designed for hair.
  •  
    You can get dull hair bouncy, shiny and manageable again. Got questions? That’s what we’re here for!

    If you don’t have them, you want them. If you do, you don’t. Ah, such is life!
     
    But curls are all the rage and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. If you have curly hair, now’s the time to show off those locks!
     
    Deep conditioning curly tresses every two weeks keeps them strong and shiny. To keep the bounce, don’t brush it! Brushing tends to make curls fan out causing them to look fluffy.
     
    Comb your hair in the shower after you’ve applied conditioner. This will give those curls the moisture they need without making them go limp.
     
    Curly hair is so versatile! Style it straight, curly or a mix of all three. But if you do decide to wear it straight, we recommend NOT using a flat iron.
     
    This will just create more dryness and damage. Instead, opt for a smoothing product, a blow dryer and a large natural brush for beautiful results.
     
    If you’re going au naturale and can’t let your hair dry naturally, opt for a diffuser on the roots. Always add a confident strut, girlfriend!

    Got Dry Hair?

    Got Dry Hair? By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Dry hair is a real pain to deal with! It won’t hold curl, frizzes, and has little body or bounce.
     
    Dry locks can be caused by many factors: your hair type, your styling habits, or how often you condition your hair. This hair type is literally screaming for extra tender loving care. So do just that!
     
    You can start by giving your hair some “rest” days from so much styling. Put it up in a messy updo or use a fun barrette for some sass.
     
    Deep conditioning weekly is a must. For an extra boost, talk to us about professional hydrating treatments. These will boost the results of your regular hair care considerably.
     
    Make sure your shampoo is a hydrating one. This is essential! And do consider adding a quality hair oil or other smoothing product to renew body, bounce and shine.
     
    Got specific questions? That’s what we’re here for!

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    As we age, our hair goes through a natural ageing process as well.  The first few significant changes we’re going to notice is that it’s not as shiny as it used to be or that it breaks easily. It’s also a lot drier and coarser.
     
    So what do you do if your hair starts to turn wiry and brittle?
     
    First, find a shampoo that’s specially formulated  for your hair type. Choose one that cleanses hair thoroughly without drying it out.
     
    Next, get regular deep conditioning treatments.  Deep conditioning is essential as it will nourish hair and maintain moisture, reducing dryness and brittleness.
     
    Treat yourself to a regular scalp massage. A scalp massage helps remove product build-up and improves circulation and oil production, improving overall hair health.
     
    It’s also important that you maintain a balanced diet to keep your hair healthy and shiny as you age gracefully.

    Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Hair Static

    Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Hair Static

    Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Hair Static By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Hair strands have an electrical charge. The charge can be positive or negative and when two positively charged strands repel each other, we have to deal with hair that sticks out and very difficult to manage.
     
    Those with fine, limp hair are prone to having static hair. As soon as the temperature drops and the air becomes drier, the hair strands attract positive electrical charges making each strand repel other strands.
     
    To tame flyaway, staticky hair, the key is to keep hair moisturised during dry, cold weather. This is achieved through regular conditioning and deep conditioning treatments.
     
    Since static is also caused by friction, avoid using a plastic comb and use a metal comb instead. And when styling your hair, use mousse or styling spray to keep it manageable and static-free.
     
    If you have to blow-dry your hair, do not forget to apply hair serum or hair oil.  After using a hair dryer, rub a small amount of hair oil or serum between your palms and lightly smooth through your hair, focusing on the ends. This will help control static and add shine.

    How To Prevent Split Ends

    How To Prevent Split Ends

    How To Prevent Split Ends By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120 
     
    We all have to deal with split ends from time to time.  And once you have them, there’s no fixing them. And because our hair looks flat and feels coarse and jagged at the edges,  each day feels like a bad hair day.
     
    But it is not the end of the world. We can prevent split ends. And we achieve this by keeping our hair strong and healthy. Here’s how:
     
    – Get regular trims. This is the best way to prevent hair from splitting at the ends. Most stylists would recommend getting a trim every six weeks to prevent breakage.
     
    – Use heat protectant spray. One of the most common cause of split ends is the constant use of heat styling tools because they tend dry out your hair.  If the occasional use of hairdryer or straightening iron is unavoidable, remember to spritz your hair with heat protectant spray before heat styling.
     
    – Deep condition regularly.  If you are having problems with split ends, prevent further hair damage by ensuring that you are giving your strands the moisture that it needs. Daily shampooing can strip hair of its natural oils so deep condition your hair once a week to replenish any lost moisture.
     
    – Go easy on harsh chemical treatments.  Chemical treatments such as colouring, perming, relaxing, and hair straightening can damage hair and eventually cause split ends. To prevent further damage, give your hair a rest from all chemical processing from time to time.
     
    – Incorporate fats, proteins, and vitamins in your diet. To keep hair healthy and shiny, consume food rich in omega-3 fatty aids, B vitamins, zinc, iron, and antioxidants.

    And the weather isn’t helping either.
     
    That’s why deep conditioning your hair at home is key to giving it additional moisture support.
     
    Sometimes, though, you may find that your at-home deep conditioning treatments aren’t holding, in spite of your best deep conditioning efforts. It’s time for back up!
     
    Salon treatments penetrate more deeply than at-home treatments because they reach deeper into the hair shaft, restoring hair’s shine and manageability. We also use our professional expertise to look at the condition of your hair and prescribe the right deep conditioning treatment for it.
     
    That means we customised the treatment just for your hair condition.
     
    Although deep conditioning will not heal damaged hair, it will strengthen it tremendously, restoring luster, shine, and manageability, shielding your hair from further damage.
     
    What’s more, you’ll find that a professional deep conditioning treatment was the kick your at-home treatments needed.
     
    Now your at-home treatments will work more effectively!

    One word: Keratin.
     
    This heavy-duty protein can make your hair look rich and soft, or dry and brittle.
     
    Why? Keratin is our hair’s defence against over-colouring, perming, teasing, styling products, regular use of a flat iron or curling iron, and even just brushing your hair! However, these everyday beauty regimens still deplete the keratin in our hair.
     
    That’s why we recommend getting keratin deep conditioning treatments to keep your hair soft, shiny and resilient.
     
    This treatment instantly infuses dry, brittle hair with a huge dose of what your hair craves most. Immediately, keratin begins to repair the damage and flaws, increasing shine and reducing frizz. It’s very simple and safe.
     
    And remember, your hair needs a break, just like you. So put it up in a ponytail or use fun accessories to tie it back on rest days, which should be at least two days a week. Also, don’t forget to let you hair air dry from time to time for soft waves.
     
    Beautiful hair isn’t hard to get if you’ll just follow these simple steps!
     
    Got specific questions? That’s what we are here for!

    All hair types benefit from deep conditioning. Having regular deep conditioning treatments is important because we need to replenish the natural hair oils that have been stripped off by too frequent shampooing.
     
    Deep conditioning treatments also improve the health of coarse, damaged hair.  If your hair’s been damaged by box colour or chemical straightening, deep conditioning treatments are a must because they will help restore your hair’s natural moisture. For porous hair, protein-enriched deep conditioning treatments will make it softer and less prone to breakage.
     
    To achieve the full benefits of  deep conditioning, you need to know how to deep condition your hair properly. Deep conditioning is different from everyday conditioning in many ways. So you can’t just slap it on for 1 to 2 minutes and expect great results.  And remember, deep conditioning treatments are specially-formulated with ingredients that penetrate the hair.
     
    So if it’s successful deep conditioning you’re aiming for, here are tips on how to deep condition your hair like a pro:
     
    – Get a deep conditioning treatment suitable for your hair type. Your stylist can assess your hair’s condition and give you sound advice on what type of deep conditioning treatment will give you fabulous results.
     
    – Deep condition regularly. Schedule treatments at least once a week or once every two weeks. If your hair tends to be greasy and limp and you use regular conditioner every after wash, then a deep conditioning treatment twice a month is recommended.  For dull and dry hair, deep condition hair at least once a week.
     
    – Allow the moisturisers and ingredients  to soak up and penetrate your hair. And how do you this? Leave your conditioning treatment on for at at least 30 minutes. And please do not overdo it. If the label doesn’t say “leave-in”, then don’t leave it on for hours or overnight.
     
    Now that we’ve shared some tips on how to deep condition like a pro, it’s time to say goodbye to dry, coarse hair. Need more tips? Call us to book your appointment today!

    The 5 Most Common Hair Mistakes and How to Solve Them

    The 5 Most Common Hair Mistakes and How to Solve Them

    The 5 Most Common Hair Mistakes and How to Solve Them By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    In wanting to have luxuriously shiny and healthy hair, people unknowingly create more problems due to misconceptions on the proper way to care for our hair.
     
    So let us set the record straight and give you some tips on how to get the hair that others will envy.
     
    Mistake #1 – Using Conditioner ONLY On The Ends Of Your Hair
     
    Most women think that conditioner should be applied on the lower half of their hair because it “weighs it down.” It should be applied from the root to end. Comb through your locks well to ensure that every strand gets its share. Let ALL of your hair enjoy the benefit of your conditioner. And for greater results, choose a salon quality conditioners that is right for your hair texture.
     
    Mistake #2 – Rough Towel Drying 
     
    You’re running late and you want your hair dry and styled before you’re out the door, so you’re rubbing your hair wildly. This doesn’t speed up the drying time, and it will even cause damage to your hair. Instead, spritz detangling spray all over. Then squeeze out water with paper towels. Your hair will be easier to comb and the paper towel will help keep the cuticle of the hair smooth!
     
    Mistake #3 – Tearing Through Knots With A Brush
     
    An absolute no-no. When you’re in a hurry, you grab a brush and quickly tear through the knots. The is the worst possible idea! The proper way to do this is to start from the bottom up to loosen knots. The best trick to prevent knot-prone hair? Use a daily leave-in conditioner.
     
    Mistake #4 – Not Using A Heat Protective Styling Product
     
    Hot tools can cause serious damage. It can cause breakage and make your hair feel dry and brittle. Insulate and protect your hair! With all the heat that is applied to your hair, this is an absolute MUST.  Using a heat protecting spray before you style your hair gives the protection it needs and deserves.
     
    Mistake #5 – Skipping Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment
     
    if you are not using conditioner daily, this one is crucial. Deep conditioning helps to fill in damaged and porous areas of your hair. It also repairs roughed up patches of hair and instantly strengthen and soften your hair.
     
    See, it’s not that hard to have beautiful hair.
